20th Annual Food & Wine Celebration: Dancing in the Mansion!
Take advantage of Early Bird pricing from now until May 5th!
The Stamford Museum & Nature Center’s annual spring celebration returns to the elegant and inviting setting of the Bendel Mansion. Over 350 guests will enjoy signature tastings of fine wines, artisanal foods from local restaurants and caterers, a silent auction, raffle, gift bags, and more. Plus, we're adding a new twist to the evening's festivities: Dancing in the Mansion!
